Bengals QB Joe Burrow returns to practice field

Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow returned to the practice field on Sunday for the first time since undergoing an appendectomy on July 26.

The Cincinnati Enquirer reporter on site said Burrow emerged from the field following a walk-through carrying a helmet and wearing the orange practice jersey issued to quarterbacks.

Signs have pointed to his return. On Monday, he resumed light throwing at practice. On Friday, ahead of the Bengals’ first preseason game, he was seen running sprints.

Head coach Zac Taylor wouldn’t offer a timeline for Burrow’s return after Friday’s game, a 36-23 loss to the Arizona Cardinals.

“He’s been running and doing some stuff like that. I think he’s getting better every single day,” Taylor said per Bengals.com.

The Bengals host the AFC North rival Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 1 on Sept. 11.

Burrow, 25, was the NFL’s Comeback Player of the Year last season. He returned from a major left knee injury sustained as a rookie on Nov. 22, 2020, to start 16 games in 2021 while leading the league in completion percentage (70.4 percent) and yards gained per pass attempt (8.9). He threw for 4,611 yards with 34 touchdown passes and 14 interceptions.

Burrow subsequently led the Bengals to the Super Bowl, where they lost to the Los Angeles Rams. He amassed 1,105 yards, five touchdowns and two interceptions in four postseason games.
